Anxiety presents itself as excessive worry. It can result from reasonable stressors, or can occur for no identified reason. Anxiety can cause difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension, fatigue and restlessness. Some individuals also experience panic attacks. These symptoms could impact your life in various areas (i.e., home, work, school). You may become easily overwhelmed when relating to family members and work colleagues.
Depression can be described as excessive sadness or “feeling blue.” It could be triggered by reasonable events or be present when there is not an identified reason. Typically, there are negative thoughts about oneself, others, and of the future/world. Depression can develop a sense of hopelessness where, “nothing I do is good enough,” and one feels “what is the point of trying?” It could also include symptoms of difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, irritability, & low energy/fatigue.
Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder presents with trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. Considered a "solutions-oriented" form of talk therapy, CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior.
Solution-focused therapy is a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of clients' responses to a series of precisely constructed questions.
It is an empathic approach that empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process. This approach believes that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential.
